You've just dismantled a special motor for a customer, and the core test indicates the wattsloss/pound is excessive. The high core losses are caused by shorts between the laminations. This may be the result of a ground failure. Or excessive temperatures may have caused the deterioration of inter-laminar insulation (called coreplate.) Whatever the cause, a replacement is 16 weeks away, and your customer wants his motor repaired. This motor sounds like a prime candidate for a restack, but you are hesitant. Your company has a reputation for quality, and the finished product has to meet your usual high standards. You want to know the best procedure for repairing this core. Here are some guidelines to help you do the best possible repair.
